The Constitution protects the liberty to make important life decisions, but not the privacy to make them. The distinction is of significance. The renaming and reorienting of the right of privacy into a personal liberty right makes practical sense. Even Griswold made apparent that privacy, in the sense of a zone of behavior not for public view, did not completely describe the protections that the Court wished to recognize for individuals against the state. That sense of privacy had appeared in reference to the marital bedroom and in analogy to the Fourth Amendment’s prohibition against unwarranted search and seizure.
But, the Court would continue to evince a strong attachment to that liberty (see Levesque, 2008). Prince adds more to Meyer and Pierce than the notion that parental liberties have their limits. Prince adds to the doctrine supporting substantive rights by highlighting the nature of their protection. The legal system protects substantive due process rights by creating a zone that the government may not enter. Rather than ensuring substantive due process rights by intruding on families, for example, the legal system ensures these rights by removing the state from family life.
In overturning the conviction, the Court did much more than rule for Mr. Meyer. The Court laid the foundation for the substantive right to liberty that would become known as decisional privacy. The Meyer Court found that the legislation had gone too far in trying to indoctrinate children. The Court drew a disparaging analogy to the practice in ancient Sparta of taking male children to barracks at age seven for state indoctrination. The Court appreciated the state’s desire to foster a homogeneous people with American ideals grounding their civic life, but it found that the state had gone too far in prohibiting instruction in modern languages.
